  1. Hello Johan,

    I have read that you are going to Nepal to do the Manaslu circuit and you are looking for a partner. Well that’s my plan as well.
    I think we can team up for this trek since it is required to be a minimum of 2. what do you think ?

    Do you think you can postpone your trip for a week since i am landing around 22 of march in Kathmandu ? have you already contacted a guide?

    For how long you will be staying in Nepal, ? I can recommend you a customized trek ( Manaslu + Annapurna for 22 days ).

    Anyway let me know your thoughts


  2. Hy guys are you still in the planning phase? Your plan seams interesting, i might join if you are still interested

  3. Hi there,
    Sounds interesting! How’s the planning going?
    I’m also looking for a trekking partner. My plan is to start walking sometime the first week of March, so maybe your still in India at that time.. let me know!

  4. I would love to hear more about this trip. I fly to Kathmandu from Goa on March 08 and I don’t meet my friends in Pokhara until April. Would be very interested in joining this trek, and I also am on a shoestring budget. Would rather carry my own pack and only hire the guide.

  5. Hi….I start my trek (Manaslu) on 26 or 27 of march….I have a guide…if you are interested to join us….let me know….TC

  6. I’d like to join! I’m available on these dates. Can you meet up somewhere before? I’d like to know more.
